Family Activities Near Nice
Cycling in Nice by Using a Vélo Bleu. Cycling along the seafront, along the splendid Promenade des Anglais in Nice, looking out across the dazzling azure sea, is one of our favourite family activities. We no longer have to faff around fixing the bike rack to the car to load up our own bikes. We rent a vélo bleu. Vélo bleu, quite literally blue bike, is the name given to the city’s public bike share scheme, along the lines of Velib’ in Paris and “Boris bikes” in London. While they may technically be Nice’s bikes, the network extends as far as St Laurent du Var and Cagnes sur Mer, making it even more convenient for us to use as we don’t have to drive into Nice to start our bike ride.
Family-friendly cycling and walking: Villeneuve Loubet is located between Nice and Antibes, and for tourists, it may not seem instantly appealing with fewer restaurants and accommodation than other French Riviera towns. However, there is plenty to see and do with lots of free activities and paid attractions that will keep your family happy on a weekend or holiday.
